Barcroft’s unique exemplary school project, the Leonardo da Vinci Project, is modeled after Leonardo da Vinci’s actions as a thinker. Barcroft students ‘Learn Like Leonardo’ by being: well in body and mind, balanced thinkers, curious, risk takers, good citizens, communicators, reflective, open-minded, aware and problem solvers. By employing creative and scientific thought throughout their learning experiences, Barcroft students are challenged with focused thinking and problem-solving activities. The highly regarded project provides students with explorations of their academic studies through interdisciplinary thematic units.

Barcroft Elementary School is the only Arlington school that follows a modified school year calendar. This calendar provides continuous learning opportunities for all. Summer learning losses are reduced due to the shorter summer break. Each quarter is followed by either a two week Intersession, where students partake in extension courses, or a break during the school year to provide continuous learning cycles.
